“perfect stay in paradise with impeccable service and food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2013

we stayed in 2 Bungalows for 4 nights on koh jum and would have happily moved there for good. Valerie and her staff have been the most accomodating Hosts we have ever come across in asia, and the facilities are charmingly decorated with a lot of thought and style. Daily Specials are ALWAYS a good choice, and Special wishes are accomodated (no carbs ;-)). also not to miss are the massages, as was the snorkeling trip.
Sundowners down by the shore are a must before dinner.
Valerie, we thank you for the great stay with all our heart - we'll be back!

Accomodations are very clean and well-managed. The steep stairs are more than three times the 26 steps to paradise they announce at the bottom. There is really no beach to speak of in this property but granted, there are some very nice beaches in Koh Jum Island. The coast here is rocky and you will have to walk on rocks to board/unboard your boat. Some nice tide pools but very few animals to see in them, unfortunately. The price-to-quality ratio is very good. The food is absolutely splendid. The menu is limited but every dish is top. Rooms are spacious, comfortable, and well kept with nice view of the secondary forest that surrounds them and a glimpse of the ocean down below. The owners are VERY hard working, very helpful and hospitable and will go out of their way to improve your experience.

Room Tip: Try to select a room with a nice view

It was one of the best Accomodation we had on our Thailnd Trip. The owerns are very friendly and helpful. It is a small resort with really nice and clean Bungalows. We had a relaxed time there and great food.

We stayed 4 nights on Koh Jum and we loved it there.

The resort is small - only 10 or so Bungalows, so it has a very relaxed feel about it. Valerie and Oon are lovely hosts, Valerie remembers your name before you even arrive which is a lovely touch, they are always on hand to help you, and their service is exceptional.

The resort is located above a rocky/sandy area, the nearest beach is probably 5-10 mins stroll along the waterfront, if you walk another 10 mins you'll get to a lovely undeveloped beach which you're likely to get to yourself for most of the day. If you like snorkeling you can head straight out from oonlee and you'll find a few small patches of coral and a few small schools of fish which is nice so close to the resort.

The bungalows are very well presented but basic, no a/c or hot water here - but that's part of what adds to the charm of oonlee - you don't have to listen to the whir of an a/c unit outside all night.. just the birds and the insects! We stayed in the front bungalow with sea views for two nights and the garden bungalow nearer the back of the property for the other two nights, we loved them both equally for different reasons - was nice to hear and see the water as you lay in the hammock on the deck, but the garden bungalow you had a lovely private spot with lots of birds and wildlife around (plus the pet dog and cat would come and visit us every morning when we got up).

I have read the other reviews which talk about the food here, and yes it is expensive, but it's also fantastic! The food was delicious, well presented, extremely fresh and well sized - sure you could probably walk for an hour and find something cheaper then walk an hour back, but that doesn't sound like much of a holiday to me, or you could hire a scooter for 300baht a day and drive there spend 300baht less on food and drive back with exactly the same amount of money left in your pocket as if you'd just stayed and eaten at the restaurant, but I doubt the food would even come close to the quality that you get at oonlee - but each to their own.

When we were leaving my partner made me promise that we could come back again, she usually makes me promise the exact opposite - I would definitely recommend you stay here if you're heading to Koh Jum - unless you're too cheap to pay for good food, or too lazy to walk 10 minutes to the beach - then I suggest you stay on the mainland with the other 99 percent of tourists.

This is a well run resort with a personal touch. The owners remember your name and take an interest in you having a good time. The bungalows spread up a steep hill with the restaurant at the top. At beach level is a bar and wooden decks build over the water to lounge in. The beach is rocky and you must make you way past the rocks to swim or snorkel. If you want a sandy beach you can walk to one in under ten minutes. The resort is quite isolated and quiet with the only choice for food being the resorts own restaurant which we found more expensive than the equivalent on the mainland. One negative thing is there is no hot water service in the bungalows.

Room Tip: The bungalows nearer the beach are wooden which are charming but can let in creepy crawlies through...

Oon and Lee are lovely people that make you feel very welcome. We stayed in the cheapest room, with just a fan and mosquito net. It was simple but fine. The only thing I would say is that if you are budget travellers like us, their food is just too expensive. And as the island doesn't have many other places to eat in walking distance, it is important to know this. We ended up having a few meals there, hiring a scooter one day, and then eventually moving soewhere with cheaper food options and more eateries surrounding it.

We stayed as a famy with Oon and Valerie for christmas and New year and it was a magical break for the whole week. The food was fantastic and the ambiance was enchanting. A true paradise. The very helpful boat trips and support were great, and the spectacular New Year's Eve dinner was and evening we will remember for all our lives. A long cherished memory for a the family.
